SAYS CHARGES ARE FALSE.
JUSTICE KELSON REPUDIATES AL
LEGATIONS OF MALFEASANCE.
Notice of nn Intended Sait for Dam
ntfH Wni Recently Filed AcainM
the Magistrate in the City Court
on Hehnlf of Henry lllitcli—Blitch
tlniiued He Had Been Arrested on
a Warrant Imaed by the Muklm
trate (hartcing Him With Slander,
Which I* Not a Crime Under the
Laws of the State—Justice Nelson
Declares That This Never Happen
Justice W. H. Nelson, of the Sixth Dis
tiicr, against whom notice of a suit for
djmages in the sum of $5,C00, for malfeas
ance in the discharge of his judicial du
ties, was recently filed in the City Court,
stated to a Morning News reporter yes
terday that !h3 charges brought against
him are untrue and without more than a
bare foundation, even, in fact.
The notice of the suit was filed by Mr.
Robert J. Travis, on behalf of Henry
Blitch. Blitch claimed that the magis
trate had issued a warrant for his arrest
and that he had b.en arrested thereun
der. the warrant charging him with the
commission of the offense of slander. As
stated by Blitch the slander consisted in
his having said of John Bailey, “that he
had stolen an anchor,” and in his notice
to the magis.rate, that was filed in court,
he assorted that the magistrate had caus
ed his arrest on this- alleged criminal
charge. The burden of his complaint was
that there was no crime known as slan
der on the statute books of the state,
and that his arrest under a warrant
charging the commission of an imaginary
crime was wrongful, tortious and in vio
lation of his personal rights and liber
As the case is stated by the magistrate,
it is clear that Blitch has no real com
plaint to make. Justice Nelson says that
there was some dispute between Blitch
and Bniley as to the ownership of an
anchor, which resulted in considerable bad
feeling between the two men. The feel
ing was aggravated when Blitch went
about the country stating to various per
sons that Bailey had stolen the anchir.
At the request of the man against whom
this charge was being made, Justicfe Nel
son says he issued a warrant for the ar
rest of Blitch, on a charge of breach of
good behavior, the breach alleged being
specified in the warrant as the slanderous
. harges that Blitch was making against
Bailey. In the opinion of the magistrate
these charges, if untrue, were certainly
breach of good behavior and if persist
ed in by the man who was making them
were very likely to result in a breach of
the peace. It was the breach of good
behavior, and not slander, for which the
warrant w r as issued and Blitc'h arrested.
Following the usual process in such
cases, the magistrate, when Blitch was
arrested, required him to give bond to ap
pear at a preliminary investigation, where
it could be determined whether or not it
was proper that he should give a perma
nent bond, conditioned that he should not
omnnt further breaches of good behavior
or of the peace.
This preliminary investigation was set
for the June court day of the magistrate,
but at this time the counsel for Bailey
was unable to be present and the* hearing
was continued until the next court day,
that of July. To this course, according
to the understanding of the magistrate,
Blitch made no objection.
Before the July court day Blitch came
to the office of the magistrate, told him
that he desired to waive the preliminary
investigation and tendered a bond for
his appearance in the City Court to ans
wer the charges- that had been preferred
against him. This course was satisfac
tory to Justice Nelson and he received
the bond that Blitch handed him, with
out any very careful examination or in
spection. He discovered afterw r ards that
ij was for Blilch’s appearance to answer
in the City Court a charge of slander, a
charge w’hich had not been preferred in
the original warrant that the magistrate
issued, nor in the bond that he had taken
for the appearance of the defendant at
the preliminary investigation.
Magistrate Nelson says he is quite will
ing to have the entire transaction investi
gated and examined, as he is confident
ihai no just ground of criticism could be
found in his actions. He is at a loss
to understand, he said, why the bond that
had been tendered him for the appearance
of Blitch in the City Court had been made
for the offense of slander, unless it w’ere
that Blitch or his counsel wished to en
trap him into some step that would lay
the foundation of a suit for damages. No
paper that had ever been prepared in
his office had chaTged the defendant with
the commission of this imaginary crime.
The warrant was a good behavior war
rant and the bond a good behavior bond,
purely and simply.
It appears that the magistrate makes
practically nothing out of his office, and
that hfe holds it, as he has for many
years, by the almost unanimous consent
of the citizens of his district. He feels
aggrieved at the charges that have been
brought against him, and requests his
friends and the public to await the issue
of the case. He is asaured that the ver
dict of the jury, as well as the verdict
of the public, will amply vindicate every
thing he has done in the matter.
GOT THE W HONG MAN .
Wm. Bevel Propose* to Find Ont
Why He \V* Arrented.
Wm. Bevel, a colored man of apparent
respectability, called at the Morning
News office yesterday and stated that he
had* been arrested at Tybee the day be
fore by two negroes, whom he described
as •'raft hands.” The negroes, he said,
appeared to be acting under the orders
of Constable W. F. Constantine. Bevel
said that ho w’as handcuffed, brought up
on the train and placed in Jail, where he
spent the night. Yesterday morning he
was taken before Magistrate Jones, and
after remaining some time at the office,
w*as told that he could go. No explana
tion was made to him, he said, and he
was not informed on what charge he was
arrested. He has engaged a lawyer and
will have the matter investigated.
Officer Constantine says that Bevel was
arrested by Richard Days, a special con
stable of Magistrate Jones’ court, on a
warrant charging him with assaulting and
beating his wife and also with a breach
of good behavior. *The officer and his
prisoner arrived in the city too late to
be given a hearing, so Bevel wns placed
In jail until morning, when he was taken
before Magistrate Nathans, Magistrate
Janes being out of the city, and discharg

ever, declares that he got the right man.

THE EVIDENCE WAS SPICY.
Trlnl of Damnifc Suit Brought Inter
| There were a few spectacular incidents
| yesterday in the trial of the case of Mrs.
j Elizabeth Evans against the Savannah,
Florida and Western Railway, which was
continued on trial before Judge Norwood
in the City Court.
The introduction of evidence for the de
fendant went on without cessation, save
the interval for dinner, from 9 o’clock in
the morning until 8 o’clock at night, and
at times, undoubtedly, it became exceed
ingly tiresome. The evidence given by
many of the witnesses went over the
same old ground, being designed to
strengthen, upon disputed points, the
contention of counsel for the defendant
that the preponderance of the evidence
was with him. While the purpose of the
introduction of this evidence was thus
clear enough, it was nevertheless any
thing but entertaining or amusing. Every
body got just the least bit tired.
An gro preacher, A. L. Brunson, was
one of the witnesses placed on the stand
in the afternoon. He had testified to a
number ol matters connected with the
hon iede of he plaintiff’s husband, by an
engine of the de*endant, and was lurned
ever to Judge Twiggs for examination.
Cours l then proceeded to ask h m a
number cf questions, relative to his ac
t ons after he left the scene of the acci
dent. It developed that Biunso'n had gone
to his church and that he had there lis
tened to a sermon preached by a visiting
member of the c'o.h. There w’ere some
further questions and answers along the
same line. Then the court intervened.
“Judge,” said Judge Norwood to Judge
Twiggs, “are you particularly interested
in that sermon?”
“Why, no,” was the response of counsel
“Well, neither am I,” said the court.
“Please be good enough to get on to some
thing connected with the case.”
Further along in the session there was
another interesting incident. A. W. Davis
the manager of an ice plant in Lakeland,
was on the stand and was being question
ed by Judge Twiggs with a view to his
“Did you not tell Judge Tucker, in the
public square of Lakeland he was asked,
“that the railroad had offered you sf>o and
a free pass to come to Savannah and
make the statement you have Just made
to the jury?”
“I did not,” was the emphatic answer of
the witness. “I never made such a state
ment to Judge Tucker or anyone else.”
“May it’please the court,” Mr. Chis
holm, counsel for the defendant, interpos
ed at this stage, “1 wdsh to say. In my
pface, that 1 have had full charge and
control of the conduct of this case on be
half of the company, and that 1 am re
sponsible for everything that has been
done. I regard the line of examination
Judge Twiggs is now pursuing as imply
ing a direct reflection upon myself, and,
with your honor's permission, I wish to
enter my protest.”
“I think you are wrong, Mr. Chisholm.”
said the court. “1 don’t thing counsel in
tended or has made any reflection upon
“Of course I have not,” said Judge
Twiggs. “I simply asked rhe witness if
lie had rot made a ccr ain statement to
Judge Tucker. I don't know, of course,
wh*thfr the statement he then made, if
he did make it, was tru* or fa's I mere
ly want to show that ir is not in accord
ance with what he has testified to to
day. I know Mr. Chisholm too well to
believe for an instant that he would coun
tenance or permit anything that was not
honorab’e and upright and clean. I meant
ro disrespect to h‘m and no hing I have
said or have asked the witness would jus
tify him in inferring that I did.”
So the incident closed. There are other
witnesses whose tistimony is being at
tacked and who will be sought to be im
peached. It is expected that the evidence
given on the stand to-day will be the
mo*t interesting of the trial.
Judge Norwood announced yesterday
fhat he intended to control the future
introduction of evidence and that he
would, not permit witnesses to testify up
on Immaterial points, as had been the
case with many of those of the defend
ant. At the instance of counsel the sten
ographer noted what the presiding Judge
had to say on this subject, for the evi
dent purpose of making it ground of er
ror should the case ever reach the Su

t>\ but there are off-shcots of the stem
in ether tribunals of Justice.
The controversy that is being judicially
wag and is f r the possession of the estate
cf the l ite Aaron Israel an cld nan who
died in Atlanta during February of the
preyen l year. The claimants of the estate
reside both in this country and in Prus
sia, and these latter beneflciar.es are pros
ecuting their claims through the German
consulate in Savannah. Through the con
sulate. Mr. Emile Newman has- been re
tained to represent their interests.
When the old man named Aaron Israel
died hr left a considerable fs’ ate. He had
accumulated the property, approximately
worth frem $15.0-0 to S2OCOO, during a long
life cf hardship and saving The old man’s
wife died two or three years preceding
his dea h and there were no children. He
left a will, in which he gave some spe
cific piec s of property to a nephew of
hi a, Mr. Louis Rehro, Of Atlanta, and
also made in the will some specific be
quests and legacies; all the r st and resi
due of his property, consisting princi
pally of real < state situated in Atlanta,
was bequeathed to his s*is er. Mrs. Jo
h inna Dobrzynski, and her children, who
live at Inowrezlaw, Prussia. Mr. Henry
Wcllhous , of Atlanta, wns inude execu
tor of th< will, and took charge of the
property. The will was duly probated.
The parties in Germany, making Inqui
ries through ihe imperial German con
sulate In this city, found out this state of
facts, and employe*! Mr. Newman to rep
resent their Interests. The attorneys for
the executor, Messrs. Slaton & Phillips
and May son & Hill of Atlanta, and Mr.
Newman, arrived at an amicable agree
ment, and in pursuance thereof some of
the property was to have been sold in
July last, so as to produce enough money
to pay off certain debts and legacies. The
remainder of the money was to be turn
ed over to the residuary legatees, and the
remainder of the property to the same
parties. Full power of attorney wan given
to Mr. Newman, and everything seemed to
proceed in its regular course.
On the day preceding the proposed pub
lic sale in Atlanta, however, on injunction
was obtained by Mr. Henry Wolf, a broth
er-in-law of the deceased, based uj on a
motion for new trial, pending in the Su
perior Court of Fulton county, which had
not been disposed of prior to the death
of the deceased, and a temporary injunc

turnable on Sept. 8.
It appears that serious charges are made
against the deceased.lt being claimed that
all of the property which he assumed to
be his own is equitably that of the de
ceased’s wife, and that she had a right to
dispose of it as she saw fit. Asa matter
